with this fox news alert with kathleen sebelius who has returned to capitol hill for round two on the botched obamacare rollout. good morning, i am jon scott. >> and i am harris faulkner and for generally. last night was the house and today the senate finance committee. we have been following this on the fox news channel and the health and human services secretary is fielding tough questions from both sides of the political aisle. there is a mad -- to fix it. peter ducey begins our live coverage. reporter: that is right, secretary kathleen sebelius says that hhs is on a aggressive schedule. basically a bunch of problems listed in order of importance. experts have assured the administration and health care.gov is not fatally flawed in that it does not need to go off-line to get fixed. >> given the fact that various fixes, particularly of functionality fixes have to be written in batches, it has been advised that you don't gain much from this taken the whole system down for a couple of weeks, it's better to do this on an ongoing basis. >> the ranking republican on the senate finance committee,
sebelius. >> still have full confidence in kathleen sebelius. >> i think kathleen sebelius under tremendously difficult circumstances over the last four and a half years has done a great job in setting up the insurance markets so that there is a good product out there for people to get. kathleen sebelius doesn't write code. she wasn't our i.t. person. >> no one so far suggested the secretary wrote even one of the estimated 5 million lines of faulty code, she doesn't seem to be going anywhere. speaking at the carter center in atlanta this morning, sebelius remained upbeat. >> we have had inexcusable technology problems with healthcare.gov. we are making progress toward fixing them, but the new law is more than a website. >> if sebelius is the happy or happy, president obama was the general taking full ownership of the fiasco. >> ultimately the buck stops with me. >> the question now is how much longer is the aca going to remain something the president feels the need to apologize for. joining me "time" editor-at-large mark halperin co-author of "double down." host of nbc's "disrupt
it since it went on-line on october 1st. meantime, hhs secretary kathleen sebelius is expected to be in the hotseat answering more questions in front of the finance committee. steve centanni has more on that. steve, tell us more. >> hi, jaime. even presidential candidate, doppler candidate mitt romney, signed -- from massachusetts is weighing in on the battle from obamacare and he zeroed in on president obama's campaign promise. listen. >> he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermind the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try and rebuild a foundation. >> that troubled health care .gov website is back up and running after an over night shutdown for repairs that had a rocky rollout. meantime congress still wants answers about the flawed website and about how many people have been able to successfully enroll in oba
, kathleen sebelius was back on the hill. >> users are receiving far fewer error messages and time-outs. and we're now able to process nearly 17,000 reg strants per hour with almost no errors. for millions of americans, delay is not an option. people's lives depend on this. we discussed security as part of the overall operations on a regular basis with the operations team, but no one i would say suggested that the risk outweigh the importance of moving forward. >> let's go right to luke russert in washington. luke, not quite the same fireworks we saw during sebelius's first round of testimony, but what did you make of the oversight there today? >> that's to be expected. the senate is the house of lords as compared to the house of commons. but what we did learn today, number one, is that kathleen sebelius resisted bipartisan attempts to perhaps shut down the website until they can get it fixed so it wouldn't be any more confusing for those who want to enroll. you saw in the bite there, there was no point in doing that because it is easier to fix the website while it was up. we also

exchanges. but the federal exchange, no money. in fact, juliette reports that kathleen sebelius couldn't find enough money to keep programmers under her wing and so what ended up happening was all of the responsibilities were fragmented to several offices in different locations. so what ends up happening is the train wreck that the republicans predicted would happen came true largely in part because of what republicans did to try to derail the law. now, that's not to say that there weren't mistakes, miscalculations, political timidity on the white house's part. but at least the white house is trying to do something affirmative, do something positive for people who don't have health insurance. the republicans have been trying to sabotage a law with no alternative to replace it with. >> and what you said just now interestingly enough seems to be where the american people are, jonathan. because if you look at the polls, the public still wants to give obama care a chance. 47% want to keep or expand the law. only 24% want to see the law repealed. and 13% say they want the law repealed and r
. it was a week ago she was grilled at a house hearing prior to kathleen sebelius, who is the health and human services secretary. joining me live is republican congressman robert pitten jer. he's been calling it a national disaster of the also joining us, tom scully who served as cms administrator under president george w. bush. he's a republican working who's been promoting the health care law, and seies it as a potentia gold mine that could make some people very rich. congressman, you were not in favor of the government shutdown over the aca or defunding the law. why do you see the health care now as such a disaster or what do you see that can be done to enhance it to make it work properly? >> well, thanks, thomas. yes, i had voted 15 times to defund or replace, reform the health care law. however, i just felt the strategy that was being advocated to shut down the government was not going to be fruitful. as it turned out, as i anticipated, it only had 14 votes in the senate to go along with that strategy that would require a shutdown of the government. that didn't seem to be very politicall
. on kathleen sebelius. what is the republican mission at this point? the website is making progress. it's handling more people, 17,000 people a minute. it's going to get better. obviously, it's better, since the last time there was testimony a week ago. what's the republican mission at this point? >> i think it's to create as much bad news and bad spin around the health care plan as they can to discourage people from going to it. it's sort of the last, you know -- last-ditch fight that they have. what's frustrating is that when you look at the individual states that have made this work, like kentucky, like rhode island, and then you look at these usually kind of states rights senators, and their own states had the chance to do this. they had the chance to make it right. they had the chance to do what rhode island did, and they didn't. they chose not to do it. they chose not to even try. >> they would -- >> so now they're blaming the federal government when they didn't even try to do it. if you're not going to do your job, you have got to be a little bit careful about blaming the people
signed up. maybe in the states it was 15. so the numbers we got last week from kathleen sebelius were slightly better in the states, but they were way below what the white house said they would be. greg, here is the future of the argument leading into 2014. what bob said, he foreshadowed, president obama did that as well today, he said basically we wouldn't be having all these problems. if republicans wouldn't have been more invested in making this work. listen. >> what was already going to be hard was operating within a very difficult political environment, and we should have anticipated that that would create a rockier rollout than if democrats and republicans were both invested in success. one of the problems we've had is one side of capitol hill is invested in failure, and that makes, i think, the kind of iterative process of fixing glitches as they come up and fine-tuning the law more challenging. >> you heard it. it's the republicans' fault. >> he believes one side is invested in failure while the other sidechieves failure. last night they had a conference call to talk about the
in a day or two. now to florida. embarrassing moment for hhs secretary kathleen sebelius. the secretary was touring obamacare sign up site and right before her eyes you guessed it healthcare.gov crashed. >> okay. >> it's going pretty smooth. >> that's good. >> so we are happy. >> i like to hear that. >> we all like to hear that. >> a lot better. >> temporarily down. >> uh-oh. >> that's okay. it will come back. you know, that happens every day. >> and hits keep coming as we just saw the obamacare problems don't stop. are these nonstop problems causing democrats to their breaking point. >> good to be with you. >> you voted against the healthcare bill but strongly in favor of reforming but just weren't crazy about the solution. >> i voted against the bill for a whole bunch of reasons, the mandatory upgrade that's resulting in the cancellation of millions of policies contrary to the president's promise that you if you liked what you you got you would get to keep it. >> did you know that at the time you voted for it. >> we had a vote on that in committee on that very issue. i was one of the
. they tell kathleen sebelius that. >> for the democratic congressional committee, yes, they do want to be in front of those people. it is noticed that they aren't giving to the congressional committee. the president, in fact, is the only draw here. >> a quick break. when we come back, what should president obama be thankful for at this thanksgiving? we're going to ask the brain trust right after this. populatin is going to grow by over 90 million people, and almost all that growth is going to be in cities. what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so th
is trying to expand their medicaid. we don't need the likes of kathleen sebelius or barack obama telling us what we should like or need, obama care is on life support. what would you say, sir? >> i would say, just look at the facts. you know, you go to these states where our exchanges are working. people are signing up in droves. and that's what's going to happen, once they get the federal exchange set up. you know, forget about the politics. you know, as governors, we don't have time to worry about all these ideological battles. i've got 4.3 million people to take care of. and i'm going to take care of these 630,000. it will attract more jobs for kentucky. >> howard, help me understand the politics. if the governor doesn't mind. i'm trying to square the success that he's having with mitch mcconnell jolly stomping on the grave of obama care. put the two of those together. >> the governor knows kentucky politics better than i. even think the governor doesn't want to put politics in the equation, the fact is there's a very important senate race in kentucky next year. mitch mcconnell is known
secretary, kathleen sebelius, announcing on a conference call that just over 106,000 signed up on the aca private exchanges in the first month. as the white house has warned, not up to their own or anyone else's expectations but there's more. nearly 400,000 have now been accessed as eligible for medicaid, or oh the children's health insurance program. and nearly 1 million customers have gotten all the way through the application process but have yet to select a plan. enrollments are improving, uninsured rates going down, growth in health care costs is slowing, and even that troubled website is getting better. but whatever you do, do not try telling that to darrell issa. just look at what happens. >> more and more individuals are successfully creating accounts, logging in, and moving on to apply for coverage and shop for plans. >> we are not able to process nearly 17,000 registrations per hour or 5 per second with no errors. >> if you can tell us 17,000 are signing upper hour why is a subpoena unanswered as to how many have signed up? is please, don't answer yet. >> don't answer that. the
